Ancient beliefs about rabbits were peculiar. They were thought to be hermaphroditic and capable of auto-procreation, keeping their virginities intact. Associations to purity and their obvious fertility made them an ideal Christian symbol (virgin births being something of tenet in Christianity). To the credit of the observational skills of ancient humans, rabbits are truly prolific breeders. A female rabbit can become pregnant with a new litter when she's already pregnant with a first batch of rabbits. It's something of an evolutionary game changer and one of the reasons springtime yields an impressive amount of brand new bunnies.

Modern beliefs about bunnies still centre around their fertility, associations with springtime and a more contemporary consensus that they are tastiest when fashioned out of chocolate. They are also the costume choice par excellence for all manner of creature when the goal is to render the wearer more adorable (or more amusing).
